I have so many favorite memories of my time with the family. Wonderful memories of the boat club and feeling so loved by Gail’s family. Mr. Strauss always looked so cool with his boat apparel and tan. He always wanted to teach me fishing and let us swim our hearts out on Lake Erie. Mr. Strauss was always so kind to me and they all welcomed me into their family.

Gail, Deb, Pam and Kelly my hugs and prayers to all of you. I hope you find comfort with each other. Please give your Mom a hug from me. We love you- Jenni, Bryce, Brent and Tyler.

So sorry for the Strauss family. Dale was a man of many talents. He had a wide variety
of interests and could add to any conversation.
He will be missed.
Just think of him as fixing up anything that needs to be done in heaven.
Love to you all
Jim and Kathleen Schulz
